Getting Started with Liquibase Pro

October 14, 2020

Trying new things can be scary. The Liquibase community team definitely doesn’t want trying out Liquibase Pro features to be anything but awesome, so we’ve outlined all the steps involved in trying out advanced features in Liquibase Pro.

Step 1: Try Pro free

See that big ol’ orange button on the top right side of our website that says “Try Pro Free“? That’s the place to start.

Step 2: Fill out the form

Yup. There’s a form. It’ll ask you for your email address and your name. You don’t need to enter any credit card information. It’s a totally free trial. No catch.

Step 3: Copy the license key

As soon as you submit the form, you’ll be directed to a page that gives you a license key. (We also send the key to your email address in case you don’t have time to grab it right away.)

Step 4: Install the latest Liquibase

If you already have Liquibase 3.8+, you can skip this step. It’s always nice to have the latest version, though. If you need the latest, you can download from our site, GitHub or Maven.

Step 5: Use your Liquibase Pro license key

There are a couple of different ways you can use your Liquibase Pro license key.

This video explains how to do both…

Step 6: View your Liquibase activity in Hub

Every Liquibase user has free access to Liquibase Hub, a dashboard with real-time information about your deployments with an overview of recent commands for the specific database you’re working on.

Once you sign up for a Liquibase Hub account, you’ll see instructions on how to connect your Liquibase activity to Hub with an API key and the registerChangelog command.

Enjoy Liquibase Pro!

You are now set to use your Liquibase Pro advanced features and powers free for 30 days. As of this blog post, here are the advanced features you’ll be able to use:

Along with advanced features, you get to try out our support! Once you’ve signed up, we’ll email you about how to access support during your trial. Liquibase has an amazing staff of engineers who know Liquibase inside and out and can save you hours of painfully scrolling through StackOverflow questions.
